Public remote Viewing test

Postby dazsmith » 25 May 2009, 22:08

Recently I was interviewed on the very interesting Paracast internet Radio show by Gene Steinbeg and David Biedny.
http://www.theparacast.com/

"April 26, 2009 — Daz Smith Paracast listener Daz Smith, who claims to be a trained remote viewer, discusses his background and ongoing experiences as a psychic. And, will he agree to our requests for a personal demonstration of his abilities? "

The show can be downloaded here:
http://www.theparacast.com/podcast/apri ... daz-smith/

Well after some discussion on air and off and a false start we did achieve a fairly level playing field allowing participation in a properly chosen and tasked target and blind remote viewing experiment for the shows forum users.

A target was chosen by the admins of the Paracast show and forum. They then assigned this a written random number and held this as a file to themselves.

The random number was the only information supplied to Myself and another participant in the attempt using the online name of 'Gulliver'. The number supplied was 4672.

We both did our Remote viewing things and sent it to the project organiser David. On the 8th of may, 2009 he posted the feedback and started the discussion on the results on The Paracast forum here:

The feedback was
Image

The Titanic wreck.
The target description was: Describe the ship in the picture, and any details surrounding it.

Here is the summary of Gulliver's remote viewing information:
Clunk, whine, ssshhhh, rumble
Smooth, polished
Grey, purple, green, white
Synthetic feel, rubbery
Metallic

Moving object, metallic, expensive, swish
Covered
Vehicle?

Whirring sound
Lifting upwards, rising up
Winching, hinged joints, gears
Pointing upwards, aiming
Powerful

Sense of a long tunnel or horizontal cylinder aimed in a particular
direction for a purpose
Pipes, tunnel

Slow movement, slow crawl
Heavy machinery
Wheel (steering)
Aimed

Rows of long pipes on floor level
Reflection as if off water
A cockpit of sorts
Metal plates, welded
Heavy machinery being reeled in / pulled
Upside-down bell-shaped object

(odd flash of 2 figures dancing like a jive, hands clasped in front of
them)

slow movement of large object
accompanied by a procession, marching, people
movement along a line,
sense of a tunnel again, long cylindrical length
(see the forum to also see Gulliver's great sketches on this target)


Here is the summary data from my remote viewing session:

The target mainly feels like:
Land, structure/s and a downwards feel or movement.

The land:
Direct, hard, solid rough and dry.

Structure/s:
Feels manmade.
Constructed.
Strong imposing shape and form.
Tall, solid, hard, thick and dense.

The structure feels:
Very linear both on the horizontal and vertical levels. Lots of lines - blocky.
A part of the structure feels downwards based - drops downwards.
I’m not sure if this is motion or aesthetic and visual.

From the perspective of looking up at the target;
it looks linear and oblique/sloped.
Everything feels chunky, solid and dense.

This has a ‘monolithic’ and important feel to it, like a memorial, a great sense of pride and achievement, a strength and for show.

Parts of the structure feel:
Blocky, stepped down, solid, edged and chunky.
Strong angles and lines feel like a major part of this target.

Downwards:
A strong sense of downward comes with this target.
A part or focus of the structure is an up down movement, possibly with the eye. I feel the form of the structure and the downwards movement of it are combined in some way.


Personally we feel that this was a great double hit on the blind target all done out in the open in front of a sceptical audience. Read the forums for yourself to see the responses and reasons why some feel it was a miss and why :)

My remote viewing session on this in full can be downloaded here:
http://www.remoteviewed.com/paracast/daz_4672.pdf

Alas I can’t go back to the forums because one of the shows owners David, who coincidentally left the forum shortly after we nailed the targets then came back a few weeks after to pick an argument and when I asked for some new evidence to back up his claims in this argument like he asked of us, he banned me for being Ignorant - personally I think It was just a reason to get rid of me a thorn in their side after we nailed the public test.

Enjoy!

I have a question for you, Daz. How much information do you need to know about the subject before you can correctly view it? Can I have a place in my mind and ask you to remote view that place? Do I need to give you coordinates? I have always been interested in how remote viewers can understand where they are supposed to view.

Good Question!
The answer is nothing at all. If the person knows detail about the target upfront its NOT remote viewing.
As in the example above the only information we had was the random number. This just acts as something for us to focus on and as a project name.

We do everything blind - hence no sceptical calls for cold reading that kind of thing - blindness also allows you to check the feedback information against the data from a remote viewer allowing you to accurately gauge accuracy - as you know the viewer was blind and had no info.

Im also participating in a project here:
http://www.farsight.org/demo/Multiple_U ... iment.html
This is to see if we can remote view a month in advance a randomly chosen news articles.

Here is my attempt done in march for an April news item - all done and posted publicially.
http://www.farsight.org/demo/Multiple_U ... h2009.html
You will see that I clearly describe a weather/tornado event as the focus of the news - which it was.

Very interesting stuff. I'll take a look at those links. I'll be interested to see how this all goes.

Daz, if I put an object in my room, would you be willing to remote view it? How long does that take? And is it mentally draining?

Do you see actual images in your head when you RV? Or what do you see exactly?

no i wouldn't do it.
Small objects in simple locations make very boring and bad remote viewing targets.
plus knowing its an object in your room cuts out millions of possible targets it could be - hence i am front loaded with information which is detracting and it makes it NOT classable as remote viewing as one is not blind to the target.

Testing and experimentation showed that real targets with change are best. Targets like a spoon on a table in the bigger scale of the universe just don't hold much attention to a remote viewer. things that are good are:
past, present, future events
big structures, locations, things
locations, people and objects
movement, energy, sensory info
ie. jfk assasination, d-day, collider test, jesus, the moon, Eiffel tower, golden gate bridge, Mt Rushmore

A remote viewing for me takes about 2 hrs:

3o mins cooldown - meditation.
1+ hr remote viewing
30 mins scanning the pages 15-25 of them
30 mins writing a summary of the data.

It can be draining - although after all these years not very much for me - just need a coffee to keep me going :)

remote viewing is the wrong name for this - really its like remote sensing or knowing. I rarely get images, i just know what is right for the target - its a feeling. I can and do ask myself questions tho and get answer, like:
if i taste the target what does it taste like?
if i move about it what does it look like?
what colour is it?
what does it smell like?
by doing this over and over you build a picture 'with data' of the target.
Sketching also helps.

I see. Fascinating. So if I draw a big famous significant place or event in history, then you could remote view it or remote sense it? Can we try it sometime? What would I need to do?

kind of, although you dont need to draw it.

we usually work a little like this.

A tasker will pick a target - say for example: the jfk assassination.

he would write on paper or put it in a word document or something.
like this:
'describe the jfk assasination,Friday, November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas, at 12:30 p.m'
( you could even add an image of the event or target if you wish)

he would then give this/make up a random number - this serves as something for the remote viewer to focus upon and as an admin use ( a refernce for the project) in this case for example: 1234 - 5678.

The tasker would keep this file to himself and would give it to the remote viewer as feedback after the remote viewer has done their magic.

All the remote viewer would get would be the random number of 1234-5678.

The remote viewer will go away and do his stuff - then scan it in and send it to the tasker.

The tasker will only then give the viewer the feedback info and let him know what the target was.
This allows both the viewer and tasker to then assess the accuracy of the data against the feedback.

The remote viewer should always be blind to what the target is - this allows whatever data they do recorded to be judged against what the target is, knowing the remote viewer had no information hence all the data must be psi.

So basically I pick a famous place large in size and describe it in an MS Word document, put a picture of the place in it, assign a number to it, and save it on my computer. Then I just give you the number, and you can try to RV it?

Sounds like a plan!

Wouldn't you need to know the location of me and my computer too?

When do you have time to try to do this?

So it has to be a well known and famous place that is large in size right? Or can it just be a common target or scene, like a forest or road?

Yes this is basically correct other than the target doee not need to be a famous or big event or thing.
Yes it can be a forest or anything - although the more interesting the target for both theviewer and the tasker the better the resulst - no one wants to be bored and road and things can be boring.

Time to do this.
I would do this for you - but to be honest im busy at the moment with a backlog or projects im working on like the multi universe public project.

As an idea of different target here some I have public on my site: http://www.remoteviewed.com/remote_viewing_results.htm
and heres about 100 that the military used to train their remote viewers in the 80-90s: http://www.remoteviewed.com/remote_view ... litary.htm

Any person, event or thing can be a target from Jesus to Hitler, from the golden gate bridge to Sydney opera house, from an island in the Atlantic to a crater on Mars.

All the best...

I hear you about being busy, so if you don't want to answer this question I will not be offended. I was thinking about this distance thing. Do you know how far away you could view? If you could view anywhere in the universe I would be interested to know what is beyond the furthest stars and galaxies that we can see with our best telescopes. I mean, if you are interested in trying such a thing. I know that it would be impossible to verify at this point in our evolution, but it would be interesting hearing your take on it.

Hi Daz,
Ok well if you're busy there's no rush. Just let me know when you have time to do it.

Do you prefer that it be a person or place? Which is easier for you?

Do I need to draw it, or just copy and paste a picture of it on my computer? Do I need to list what "category" it's in, like person, place or thing?

What if I put the image as my computer desktop? Would that help?

There are no limitations to remote viewing - distance does not factor.
If you could view anywhere in the universe I would be interested to know what is beyond the furthest stars and galaxies that we can see with our best telescopes. I mean, if you are interested in trying such a thing.


It would be great to know and do this - but the feedback might take a long time coming. for this to be remote viewing there has to be feedback (the only way to gauge accuracy).

For remote viewing to be remote viewing and to separate it from other psychic means it needs to have these things in place - if not its NOT remote viewing:

1. it all needs to be planned project - nothing spontaneous.
2. There has to be an identified target.
3. the remote viewer has to be blind (not know anything specific about the target) why we hide it behind random numbers. No one who knows the target is allowed in the vicinity or in contact with the remote viewer.
4. There has to be feedback - to gauge the accuracy of the psychic data.

if any or more than one of these is missing is classical psi and not remote viewing :)

Well reading opening post I dont see a double hit. you were given "ship" ,so all this
Clunk, whine, ssshhhh, rumble
Smooth, polished
Grey, purple, green, white
Synthetic feel, rubbery
Metallic

Moving object, metallic, expensive, swish
Covered
Vehicle?

Whirring sound
Lifting upwards, rising up
Winching, hinged joints, gears
Pointing upwards, aiming
Powerful

Sense of a long tunnel or horizontal cylinder aimed in a particular
direction for a purpose
Pipes, tunnel

Slow movement, slow crawl
Heavy machinery
Wheel (steering)
Aimed

Rows of long pipes on floor level
Reflection as if off water
A cockpit of sorts
Metal plates, welded
Heavy machinery being reeled in / pulled
Upside-down bell-shaped object

(odd flash of 2 figures dancing like a jive, hands clasped in front of
them)

slow movement of large object
accompanied by a procession, marching, people
movement along a line,
sense of a tunnel again, long cylindrical length

Is a description of a ship! Amazing!

oh common azrael
lets hear about these stories
it would be nice if daz has a time off to do this with scescop
it would be a really neat experiment
